of this unfold. but let's bring in our law enforcement analyst here with us in boston. julia, come on over here. >> all right. >> let's talk first of all about john king's reporting substantial progress in the criminal investigation here in boston, significant development. we don't know what that progress is. but you know what, john is joining us on the phone right now. so let's talk to john. john, go ahead and tell us what you can. >> wolf, i'm on my way to you now. i want to report some breaking news information from two sources. one is a boston law enforcement source who tells me they believe they do have a significant breakthrough in the investigation. this source is calling this substantial progress. that source declined to be more specific but said to anticipate more details later today. now, i want to give you some information -- initial information important from a second source who has been briefed on the investigation. and i am told by sources that both governor deval patrick and mayor mannino and after the boston commissioner after one of the briefings this morning went to talk to th
that just passed here. this was a key area, an area where a lot of law enforcement was gathering. we saw a truck. there were armed personnel on it. we saw bomb sniffing dogs from the fbi. really, the impression was they were searching for an ied. something you would see in a theater of war, in a combat zone, not here in the streets of boston. you still have a lot of personnel. some have slowly been pulling back. again, it's a very active scene that's going on right now. we don't know the status. we don't know where this individual is, whether he's close. whether he's in custody. but by creating a huge perimeter around this particular area, what they do hope to do is either flush him out, or at least tighten the noose. and so that's what they're trying to do. they are going door-to-door. they are canvassing different homes, they are trying to do a sweep. remember, these people, even though they were on the run, they hijacked -- they basically harnlg acked an individual and then they fled and they were still throwing out bombs we're told either bombs or grenades or some sort of pipe bomb.
constitution all laws he united states of american against all enemies, foreign and domestic. and we pledged to perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required when i recited this pledge last week, i cannot imagine that work of national importance by civilians would be required here in boston so soon. but now, all of us need to take up this pledge. we all have service to perform and indeed, we are all move by the thousands of people who stepped forward in a moment of tragedy and confusion to serve. i want to salute everyone who ran toward the victims, despite risk to themselves. everyone who gave blood, everyone who volunteered shelter for stranded runners, i want to salute the members of law enforcement who are protecting us as we speak and to thank the people around the world who are sending messages of hope and solidarity. before us, all the civilian work of national and international interest, no one has to take a a formal oath. we know instinctively that we stise to the od act because of our common humanity. that is what makes us erans. one nation under god, a
it was so hard to talk about. i've talked to doctors and law enforcement officials who have seen a lot of bad things in their day and they have a hard time talking about the carnage they saw yesterday. pamela, thank you very much. >> reporter: we're just getting word into cnn that president obama will make a statement 11:30 a.m. eastern time from the white house briefing room. not sure if it's an update on the investigation, if he has new news. but, again, that statement coming at 11:30 a.m. eastern time. we will of course bring it to you the second it happens. what happened in boston was terrifying for hundreds who were there at the scene when the bombs went off. it's terrifying to look at the video. cassidy brettler witnessed the terror firsthand. this is what she told cnn. >> i don't know. i mean, honestly, i got home last night about 11:00 and started to break down because i had been holding it in all day. i had been trying to remain composed. on social media and video just portray what was going on and tell my story. but by the time i was trying to fall asleep, it was hitting me,
of massachusetts. >> there's an enormous presence of federal, state and also local law enforment agencies working very much hand hand and pulling in the same direction. that's important. i think as chief executive my job is to make sure they have the resources they need and to step back and give them the space they need to do what they must do. and we as citizens, i think have to be patient with that the other thing on the comforter side is to assure people of that about which i am confident which is that we will heal. we will be strong and we will be a sustaining community even through arage like this one. >> rose: we kin this evening with mike barnicle of msnbc's morning joe kevin cullen of "boston globe" and john miller of cbs. >> if they think they will get us they don't know much. we care in boston about politics, sports and revenge. the revenge is the laughter of our children. these guys don't knowwhat ty did. every cop i talked to today, just hard looks and people are ready. and i have no doubt they'll identify who did this. boston is a tough town. it's the kind of town where people take
with governor of massachusetts, deval patrick. we have talked to law enforcement officials and people from the medical profession and good citizens of boston and massachusetts. i would like to look at this through unique eyes of you, as the chief executive officer of massachusetts, tell me what you saw and what you felt and where you are and where you have to go with the people of massachusetts in absorbing what has happened and where they go from here. >> well, charlie, i was -- i was at the finish line opposite the blast until an hour, an hour and a half before the first two of the blasts. and like so many people who had been there in the course of day and were at the time of blast, of course, one thing that goes through your mind is there but for the grace of god. i think as a community we're rattled and in some cases shattered. i think everyone's sense of security is certainly shaken. but i also know us, and i know that we're made of pretty resilient stuff. and that we are turning to each other rather that on each other and that we will heal. that will take some time. >> rose: with res
for his wife and daughter to cross the finish line. >>> as we promised right now, law enforcement is holding a news conference right now. first, the governor of massachusetts. >> the recovery, and any of us are available to take questions from any of you. so let me start with special agent here. >> good afternoon, my name is rick delauris. yesterday at this time the effort was on saving lives and treating the injured. as soon as important tasks were completed, first responders focused on establishing the criminal investigation. the joint task force composed of more than 30 state and local and federal agencies, including the boston state police, the massachusetts state police, atf, and others responded to the scene. many of them were already there as part of the general security for the marathon already in place. the first step law enforcement took was to secure the physical area around the blast for the purpose of preserving the evidence in the area related to the devices itself. this morning, the fbi, along with boston pd, massachusetts state police and atf officially began the f
law enforcement officials would be thinking at this time. >> well, i think the main goal right now is to get this other guy in custody before he hurts anybody else and try to close out the situation. he's a very, very dangerous person. i don't think anyone is safe in that area until he's apprehended. and it sounds to me like he doesn't want to be taken alive. so there could be another chutout before this whole thing is over. >> that's what you speculate because the other suspect had an ied strapped to his chest? >> absolutely. we don't know the whole background on these guys. we don't know what their motive was. we don't know exactly all the things. a lot of it is going to be -- we're going to determine that in the next several hours. but it doesn't sound like they want to be captured or he wants to be captured and go through the justice system. i think he's going to shoot it out within way or the other. >> let me ask you a quick question. can this be done by two individuals? meaning do you need more of a support system to get all of the materials that were clearly required to this
're sharing it with other law enforcement agencies, just trying to see if anybody knows this person and there is to doubt a strategy to that. but they don't want to get the information or any pictures out of the public yesterday to perhaps clue this person in on where they're at in the investigation. so we can't independently verify any of those other pictures that are floating out there and i can tell you that the authorities have not officially released any pictures. >> has there been a sense of frustration from the authorities, scott, because of all of the, you know, head fakes and misinformation that has gotten out, some of the early stuff that's been out, also because of potential media that's made it easy to make these pictures go around very quickly. >> well, i'm sure there's a great deal of frustration. we've with he got the fbi's statement that came midafternoon yesterday after the false reports of an arrest. that was pretty strongly worded that said that basically admonished the media to vet your information better. that said that the reports of an arrest were erroneous an
. homeland security correspondent bob orr is in washington following the investigation. >> reporter: law enforcement officials say the bombs contained an explosive similar to black powder. they were laced with bbs, ball bearings and nails. trauma surgeon said many of the injured have multiple shrapnel wounds. >> they are numerous, numerous. there are people who have 10, 20, 30, 40 of them in their body or more. >> reporter: investigators believe the bombs were hidden in black nylon backpacks. and housed inside sealable metal pots called pressure cookers. pressure cooker bombs can help boost the power of relatively small devices by briefly constraining the blast. and when the cookers do explode, they can add large chunks of metal to the shrapnel spray. the i.e.d.s have been popular with terrorists. al qaeda published a how-to recipe in an on-line magazine. several of the bombs were used in the 2006 attack on trains in mumbai india. in 2004 and 2010, the department of homeland security warned law enforcement that pressure cooker bombs could present a threat in the u.s. in the failed time s
almost going door to door. we are watching s.w.a.t. teams and other law enforcement, following up on tips checking out residents in the area. we just don't know where this person is right now. >> bill: do we know anything more? peter, you were just mentioning if we can run, peter ogburn our producers in studio here had just had a report from pete williams, i guess, from nbc. >> pete williams from nbc is reporting that these gentlemen are legal, permanent residents. they have been in the country for at least a year. so they could possibly be from turkey or czechoslavakia or check knee czhenia. >> with the cools in the area they have been there on a student visa or who knows? >> that's very possible. : during the press briefing today, boston fwlooeings commissioner, edward davis says he believes the circulating nurse expect who was killed and probably the other suspect as well is indeed a terrorist and that they were in fact, and i quote, they believe this man to this man to be here to kill people. whether he is part of a terrorist group or not, stand b
